explains why we still don't have a budget and how our elected officials have bungled a basic business process most of us handle with ease. a must see. "your money" starts right now. jo america's road to economic recovery is wide open, right in front of us, if our elected officials don't put major blocks in your way. i'm ali velshi. debt ceilings, budgets and spending cuts are all you'll hear coming out of washington for the next few months. the partisan warfare in washington could put a dent in any recovery. the threat is real. the next battle will be another clash over raising the u.s. debt ceiling. the current ceiling was officially hit on december 31st, but like last time the u.s. treasury is using extraordinary measures to get through about late february or early march. if congress doesn't act by then, the government risks not being able to pay some of its bills. republicans seem to think the debt ceiling is a useful tool to limit how much the government spends, but that is not what the debt ceiling law is supposed to do. it gives the u.s. treasury the flexibility to borrow money
: what about making republicans more efficient. what happened to you, you lost the election you lost your backbone? >> i don't believe so. i certainly have you. if you are talking about the fiscal cliff, back in 2003 they made tax cuts temporary. they extended the temporary nature come two years but come january 1st income tax was going up. so this was protecting 99% of americans. republicans wanted to protect every american. we didn't want to see taxes increased on anybody. we didn't have that option. all we could do because president obama demanded the taxes were going up for some americans. >> neil: for this whole kubuki theater was silly? >> the house passed extension past august. harry reid refused to bring it up. president owes congress a report because medicare is spending out of the general fund 45% what it is paid for benefits. that required by law and 15 days after he submits a budget he has to submit a report to fix it. four years he hasn't done that. we should be demanding of this president to follow lawsuit on. >> neil: you voted for this cliff deal in the senate. do you thin
on the 2012 election mayor bloomberg has a net worth of $22 billion. if money can, in fact, shape public opinion mayor bloomberg could bury the nra. today the mayor was evasive whether he would put his money towards the cause, but he did point to another leader who bloomberg is saying could do even more than mayor bloomberg himself can. >> well, i've got 350-- >> what are you going to do with your money? >> well, let's say it's going to be all given way. stanley mcchrystal has more credibility than i ever will have in terms of guns and the damage guns could do. >> jennifer: that's right the third leader to head the gun control general mcchrystal in afghanistan. today general mcchrystal called for much stricter gun laws. >> i spent a career carrying m-16s and it fires a 223 caliber round at 3,000 feet per second. when it hits a human body the affects are devastating. it is designed to do that. that's what our soldiers out to carry. i personally do not think that there any need for that kind of weaponry on the streets. >> jennifer: well, even these three very powerful leaders mcchrystal bl
of that child now has a strong message for our elected leaders in washington. >> 20 heartbroken families lost a child in the sandy hook school shooting. i know how much it hurts. my 9-year-old daughter was murdered in the tucson shooting. i have one question for our political leaders. when will you find the courage to stand up to the gun lobby? whose child has to die next? to every mother, we cannot wait. we have to demand a plan. go to demandaplan.org and add your name. >> the ad is part of a campaign of the group mayors against illegal guns. demand a plan has a three-step solution to reduce gun violence in america. they want a criminal background check for every gun sold in the country. a ban on assault weapons and high capacity ammunition magazines. and they want to make gun trafficking a federal crime, all common sense stuff. groups like demand a plan want to keep the focus on this issue as vice president joe biden and his task force hold meetings this week to create a path forward. tomorrow, wednesday, the vice president will meet with the victims groups and gun safety efforts. on thursd

in 2003 investigating the issue. now, it is possible that no one will get elected into the hall of fame and if that happens, it would only be the second time in more than four dick aid. it might even create a logjam in next year's elections. coming up we'll tell you why this shouldn't fall squarery on baseball players themselves. tara moriarty, ktvu channel 2 news. >> thank you. >>> 7:06. sal is back now. boy, the commute is getting heavier and heavier. >> it certainly is, dave, and tori. this is the time when you start seeing the peak of this commute. you will see slow traffic all over the place. let's start off with a look at the toll plaza and the east shore, the east shore leading to the toll plaza, if will be pretty slow especially as you get past el cerrito. it slows down on the way to berkeley. it's not as bad as it could be. there is a little bit of space there in some of those lanes which is a nice surprise. maybe later in the week or maybe later in this morning is what i meant to say, it might get better after 8:00. moving along to the slow traffic on the east bay commute, all
it would be a very interesting fight. the president is clearly coming off this election is going to push everything he can to the edge. he has no interest in negotiating. he wants to push the country as far as he can. sooner or later, the house republicans have to decide that they're going to cheerfully draw lines in the sand and the constitution gives them the power, the greatest power of the congress is the power of the purse and all they have to say is you have no money to do this. >> greta: with three co-equal branches of government, that's a given. i'm curious when can a president use an executive order and when can't he? is there a line of demarcation. >> the executive order comes to execute the law. so as long as it's -- basically the congress passes a law. the president wants to execute that law, so he issues an order saying, we're going to do the following things, but what he can't do is write a new law. >> let's take the example of gun control. if he issues an executive order where he has an idea in his mind about what gun control should be, can he issue executive order? is tha
. they recognize there's a gubernatorial election coming up. i think what sweeney should be doing is saying who is going to be the democratic candidate and how can we create a message in our state, forget national shows. in our state to go chris christie. otherwise, it's sour grapes, so stop wasting your time complaining about praying for a storm. find a candidate first, then get a message. >> this raises a really interesting point though, which is that the whole country assumes chris christie is going to run and he's very popular right now. and then when you actually run, people start throwing at you. they did with mitt romney, about his taxes, about the education rank of massachusetts. there were all kinds of things. things like having an unemployment rate 2% higher, that could change. or you could look at these statistics and they could change how you think about how he will do in a republican primary. >> the big thing is that chris christie has this profile where he's saying i'm a problem solver, a bipartisan guy. i get things done, but the thing is that there are two big democratic party b
is democratic congressman allan grayson of florida. welcome. and congratulations on your re-election. >> thank you. >> congressman, governor scott has repeatedly turned down the offer of federal funds that would allow parents to care for their children at home. in the interest of transparency, we cared for my own disabled brother at home until he died. but florida has planned structured and administered a system of care that has led to the unnecessary separation and isolation of hundreds of children in nursing facilities. congressman, what kind of person is it that chooses to target the most defenseless and weakest members of our society? >> a sick, cruel, sadistic person who happened to be elected governor despite the fact that he committed the largest fraud against medicare in our history. i have to tell you that sometimes the judgment of the voters is almost inexplicable. we've taken somebody who has an appalling record, a callousness to him that's manifested, dishonesty that's manifest and we made him governor of the third largest state in the country. the results is shocking. you say mayb
. newly elected senator elizabeth warren called the idea of suing the government outrageous, saying aig was, quote, biting the hand that fed them. public relations blunder came at a particularly bad time for the company which was looking to remake its image with a series of ads titled "thank you america." >> the leading global insurance company based right here in america. >> we've repaid every dollar america lent to us. >> everything, plus a profit of more than $22 billion. >> for the american people. >> thank you, america. >> helping people recover and rebuild. that's what we do. now let's bring on tomorrow. >> so they just rolled out those ads a week ago and then came out and threatened to sue the government. >> and on twitter, what we were asking yesterday, what would elizabeth warren do, is now becoming a, i don't know -- >> a hash tag? >> yes. exactly. >> that's huge. >> what's the "i" for in aig, ingrate? >> they are not joining the lawsuit. editorial page of "the wall street journal" suggests that aig probably did the right thing by not joining the lawsuit, but it doesn't mean t
